Unhappy Unable to reset brake service info

Hi my friend, last week I reset my 40,000 miles (now at 40,246) service light with a reset tool from my Snap-on truck dealer. I reset the service light with no problem then i start to browse the menus & went into the brakes part of the menu, I remember doing the brake not to long at the dealer but on the scanner was showing that i have like 2% brakes. Then i press reset on the scanner and thats when all my problems start. Now i have a Brake warning all the time at the dash board and i cant reset like all the other service from the cluster reset, all i get is mls------- insted of mls12345. Any idea on how to fix this problem, brakes & sensors have less than 10,000, I just make a visual inspection by removing the tires & the brake looks like they were installed just a week ago ( BRAND NEW) but thy were install around 9 months ago, just drive this car some times because i have a daily driver 2002 VW GTI ( SORRY:-) I call the dealer and this will not be covered by warranty from the car or the brakes and I will like to try something by my self before i have no other choice that take the car to the dealer. PLEASE I NEED SOME HELP !!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks

Have you tried holding down the trip computer button on the instrument cluster to reset the service indicator that way?

That happened to me when I broke my brake wear sensor. It wouldn't allow for a reset. Did you replace your wear sensor?

+1. You need to replace your brake pad wear sensor. There is one on the front axle (LF) and one on the rear axle (RR).

You only have a limited time(200kms ?) to reset the brake warning light. Otherwise the only way is to go to a dealer and use a GT1 scan tool to reset it. You could also try disconnecting the battery for ten minutes and then trying again - using your scan tool or my DIY.


Btw... you do not need a scan tool to reset those service lights. use my DIY...

DIY resetting service "due" lights…

Works like a charm with Autologic!

Find someone or an independent BMW shop that has one.
